We are playing poorly, inviting Newcastle to dominate. Sidwell's presence in the middle is really missed.

We are putting ourselves under unnecessary pressure. We can´t keep playing deep. Duffers has done nothing apart from getting booed. Frei on in the 2nd half for Duff.

I'd like to see Ruiz crack some shots off. He made a good run earlier and looked dangerous. He's a great finisher.

Newcastle look incapable of hitting the target.

Is it just me, or Berbatov and Ruiz partnership is just MAGIC today? o.o

Enoh has been the stand out player for us. So many interceptions and tackles. He looks excellent. Not missed Sidwell today.

It's been outstanding. The difference today is that Ruiz is finally finally trying to score. God knows why it's taken him so long.

The game is being played at a very leisurely pace. I think Newcastle could be tired after their midweek Europa game. We should try and up the pace right from the start of the 2nd half. We can get all 3 points here.

Really impressed with Enoh, not so much Manolev.  He's not done anything wrong, just not really done anything.  He POSSIBLY could have done better from the corner, but Krul was half a yard away - looked like he may have been fouled too?

So far, so... far.  It's been ok.

I've been impressed with Manolev. He isn't as speedy and flashy as Dejagah, but he plays it simple and it's worked. He should have done better with his chance though...

we certainly look disjointed with the 2 forced changes but it's another encouraging half. Enoh looks a tidy player whilst Manolev looks a tad off the pace but by no means poor.

Seems like Newcastle are getting the bounce of the ball a bit but reckon we can nick this easily. Would love to see Frei have a run at Gutierrez

Manolev offers nothing going forward. We need someone to run at Gutierrez.

Missing Dejagah out there, Manolev is a tidy enough player but Gutierrez is not a natural left-back and we need to be running at him more, something Dejagah always does. Ruiz and Berbatov seem like they'll combine for a goal at some point today. And Eyong Enoh has been excellent, a rock in the middle of the park

Enoh is fighting a lot. Manolev played some clever passes, but still doesn't look too confident! Hope that we can charge for the 3 points!

Encouraging first 45 mins. We look good in the final third and I am hoping that Newcastle will tire as the half progresses. We really need someone on who can get at Gutierrez.

Is Petric injured? Doesn't ever seem to even make the bench nowadays.
I personally rate Petric, he's been so unlucky this season and deserves a chance at premier league level even if it's not with us.

Agreed. Of course we can't expect him to play over Berba and unfortunately the two don't play well together. Had we not signed Berba, I think we could have easily seen Petric get.  10-15 goals.

I think I now see why Frei, Emanuelson, and Rodallega are on the bench.
Jol will try to keep it 0-0 until 60th minute, and bring these guys on to add pace in place of the likes of Duff, Manolev, and a tired Karagounis to win the game.

Same type of challenge Sidwell made. The ref inconsistency is infuriating.
